Hi Wendy, this is a great (although difficult) question.
In my opinion, the answer is probably yes for all of us. I know that until I fully came out to my wife, I definitely was evasive (because, let’s face it, our wives are a lot more aware than we think or give them credit for) when the topic would come up. That’s because I didn’t want to publicly admit to her who I really was, and I thought that by not answering or redirecting the conversation I was “protecting” her. In reality, I was protecting myself by hiding myself, at least until I was ready to fully open up and be honest with her.
